Sete rises up from the sea resembling an 'island' which it once was - it used to be a small fishing village on the island of Mont Saint Clair, but became the definitive Languedoc fishing port for France on the Mediterranean.
This picturesque town is known as the Venice of Languedoc because it has the canal running through it and lots of bridges crossing it. The local sporting traditions such as water jousting in August attract Languedociens and tourists alike. Sete's charm, apart from the canals, boats, beaches etc lie in a big selection of restaurants offering the catch of the day.
In fact, the town and Regional authorities have spent a vast fortune on improving the coastal roads and beaches which now join the town. The house is so well-positioned because it lies literally within 10 or 15 minutes walk from a number of attractions.
A few minutes walk via a small local road brings one down to the sea-side 'promenade' La Corniche, with a cycle path, leading to the beaches and a number of excellent beach restaurants.
Apprx 10 minute's walk from the house is the Theatre de la Mer which is a fabulous open air venue overlooking the Mediterranean. The Jazz Festival in July is a great event plus there are other music and drama programmes in the Summer.
A number of small local shops and supermarkets are also within walking distance. One can get by without a car, relying on a good train service to Montpellier, Agde, Beziers, and Narbonne.
There are a couple of town beaches close by, plus the vast stretch of apprx 12km of uninterrupted sandy beach stretches from Sete to Cap d' Agde.
From Sete one can take sailing trips, glass bottom boat excursions do water sports, micro-light flights, tennis, golf, horse riding.
There are a few museums (Contemporary Regional Art Centre and Musee Paul Valery) and a Casino for gaming enthusiasts.
